DAVOS, Switzerland: January 25, 2019. CDP, formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project, has published its latest ranking of companies recognised as pioneers for action on climate change, water and deforestation.

Last year CDP received 6,800 carbon emission reports from the world’s largest businesses and scored them from ‘A’ to ‘D-‘. Less than 150 were rated ‘A’ based on a range of metrics including transparency, target-setting, and awareness of risks and opportunities.

Only 127 got an 'A' grade for their action on climate change and only a very small number was from the transport/logistics sector. They included UPS (US), DP World (UAE), La Poste (France), Deutsche Bahn (Germany), Ferrovial (Spain), Grupo Logista (Spain), and Nippon Yusen Kaisha Line (Japan).

Grupo LogistaWhy collect the data? The companies that disclosed to CDP last year did so at the request of over 650 investors with assets of US$87 trillion and 115 major purchasing organisations with a combined spend of US$3.3 trillion.

Dexter Galvin, CDP global director of Corporates and Supply Chains commented: “As the recent report from the IPCC showed, the next decade is crucial in our shift to a sustainable economy, and we believe corporates are at the heart of this transition. By ranking companies, we aim not just to highlight leaders’ best practice, but also to inspire all businesses to aim higher and take more action.”

The global disclosure system enables companies, cities, states and regions measure and manage their environmental impacts to help investors and purchasers, representing over US$100 trillion, make decisions, reduce risk and identify opportunities.

“As a CDP Supply Chain member, the wealth of information provided by CDP disclosure is critical in helping us understand how our suppliers are performing, and where we can engage with them to reduce environmental impacts and costs,” commented L'Oréal Chief Corporate Responsibility Officer Alexandra Palt. “We particularly look to the CDP ‘A List’ and scoring process to help improve the environmental performance of our suppliers.”

Some of the other companies reporting in the transport sector last year and rated ‘B’ to ‘F’ (insufficient data submitted) included:

A-: CSX, Union Pacific, China Airlines. B: AFKLM, ANA, Cathay Pacific, Delta, Lufthansa, East Japan Railway, First Group (UK), Go-Ahead Group (UK), Grandrod (South Africa), Mitsui OSK, Nankai Electric, United Continental, Bollore Logistics, Aurizon Holdings (Australia), Transnet (South Africa), Amtrak (US), Pegasus Airlines (Turkey), and Kayseri Ulasim (Turkey).

C: AP Moller Maersk, Canadan Pacific, Air Canada, Southwest Airlines, SAS, Swire Pacific and the Alaska Air Group. D: Aeroflot, American Airlines, Singapore Airlines, Hub Group, JB Hunt Transport. F: Air China, COSCO, Air New Zealand, China Eastern, easyJet, XPO Logistics, China Southern, Evergreen, Ryanair, LATAM Airlines, Matson and Hapag-Lloyd.
